Public transportation to the Championship is also encouraged.

Complimentary shuttles will be running from the Metra to the Championship. Please check www.metrarail.com for more information on train schedules.
For those who require ADA accessible parking and lift-equipped transportation, the PGA of America has made accommodations at Lot B - Lake Zurich High School (300 Church St. Lake Zurich, IL 60047). Please call (877) 472-7275 for more information and to obtain your parking credential.
For spectators who plan to arrive by taxi, limousine or car service, drop offs should be planned for the General Public parking lot located at Lake County Fairgrounds (1060 E. Peterson Rd.

Please note that due to safety concerns, there are no walk-ins and there will not be a location for on-site drop-offs and pick-ups unless spectators have proper parking credentials. Fans who plan to arrive by rideshare services should be picked up and dropped off at the approved designated location located in Lot A.
The 2018 KPMG Women's PGA Championship will take place June 26-July 1. Tickets are available for purchase at www.KPMGWomensPGA.com.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
